Red Cosmos - There And Back (ca509)


Publication date 2013-01-21
Based in York (UK), Red Cosmos is the solo project of Kim Tortoise. Kim was previously a member of The Gods Themselves with Art Moran. They made two super-limited cassettes of novelty tunes and five-minute fade-outs.

The very first Red Cosmos track (The Chicken Song) consisted of looped samples of Kim Tortoise Junior and friends talking about chickens, backed by a playful electronic beat. This set the mould for most of Kim’s early output. However, the track Son of Morris, a cut-and-paste shoegaze number (featuring vocals by Art Moran) changed direction somewhat and garnered airplay on WFMU and Dandelion Radio. A prolific output in demo mode ensued, and a Red Cosmos re-mix cum mash-up of the Gwilly Edmondez sound-poem Balls Roll Everywhere was described as “possibly one of the daftest tunes I’ve ever played” by Andrew Morrison (Dandelion Radio).

This is Red Cosmos' first long-player There And Back. It includes (amongst others) a choraldelic ode to the legendary Psych re-issue label Bam Caruso Records (St.Albans Colour Explosion), a high-voiced love song sung by a kidnapper (You Said You Loved Me), and a track featuring Kim Tortoise's father-in-law reciting a poem about the fate of Iron Stone Miners in Yorkshire (Iron Rush).

There And Back seems to have pleased and perplexed in equal measure. One reviewer wrote that he was “forced to throw my headphones across the room and slap my own ears” during the chorus of England’s Glory.
